She’s Beautiful

She's Beautiful | www.preparingthesoil.com  

We're headed out for the week to go camping with some dear friends, but I have been meaning to post these photos for a while now. A few weeks ago, as my sweet Alaina was coming in from playing outside, I saw this beautiful young woman in front of me and asked if I could take some pictures. She reluctantly agreed. She only gave me a few minutes before the silly faces came out, but what I saw made me swell with pride.

This girl is truly amazing.  She's 11 1/2 and she is...well...amazing. I wouldn't even know where to begin to explain how truly amazing she is. All I know is that I am blessed to have her and it is so incredible to watch the Lord work in heart as He grows and matures her. As I see her selfless service and the way she looks out for her siblings and is always watching and waiting to see if I need something, I am truly in awe. Although part of me wants to keep her little forever, I am so very excited to see the woman that God is growing her into. I believe that she will be one of my very best friends one day. Her character blesses me, gives me hope, and inspires me. I am one lucky mama.

And let me tell you...she has great hair.
